College Algebra for Business Course Objectives
- Solve business applications using numerical, algebraic, geometric, and/or statistical
- Analyze data by using technology to accurately create scatterplots and determine goodness
of fit for linear, quadratic, power, exponential, logarithmic, and logistic models.
- Apply knowledge of rates of change, including average rate of change, constant rate
of change, and constant percent change, to determine appropriateness of mathematical
model for a given application.
- Solve complex problems requiring several mathematical strategies and/or techniques.
- Produce precise representations of mathematical models using symbolic, visual, numerical,
and verbal conventions.
- Perform the algebra of functions, including transformations and compositions of functions.
- Solve compound interest and annuity problems, including finding present value, future
value, number of payments, and interest rate.
Uses linear, quadratic, power, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and
logistic functions to analyze business applications such as market equilibrium, rates
of change, cost-benefit analysis, and inflation. Includes systems of linear and non-linear
equations and inequalities, matrices and matrix equations, sequences and series, and
